the reality of it is everything doesnt work for everyone. if u ever have a hankering to try somehing new, it may be best to buy small quantities to save urself more heartache & money. a few months ago I bought one of the gels ( i think set up.. something like that). literally after one fingertip full i knew i wasnt for me. took that ish back to ulta & got a refund. my hair didnt respond, not to mention the prices for that line are ri-damn-diculous
